Default ROMS for sprd S580 Android phone

So I got this spreadspectrum phone branded by SVP but its actually SPRD S580 inside running A5 cortex and MTK6517 h/w.
I managed to root it finally - the guide and threads here did not work.
Can someone PL point me to some ROMS for this phone and some gimme a direction about hunting them down,
My understanding is ROM incompatilbilty can brick your device . So I should back up my current image. Hows that done,
ALSO I find some threads where some other branded phone with MTK6517 h/w but maybe different processor , GPU etc has been offered a custom ROM upgrade to JB/ICS.
Should I try that out ? OR the ROM to be used is specific to that CPU + H/W combination : e.g. A5 + MTK6517 and same brand.
Pl help ....

Could you point me to the tuts that showed you how to root this phone? I also have the SVP S580.

It's running 2.3.5 Android and I would like to update it to a newer version, if possible.

Thanx

Unfortunately, all the text on the splash screen is in Kanjii...

Could you point me to an instruction PDF or give me a starting point.

Very much appreciated...

NOTE: Disregard.. GOOGLE is my friend.

Default SVP S6580

Hi,

I too have SVP S580. The whatsapp - preinstalled in that phone is not working. How to root that and UNINSTALL whatsapp and install the latest version in that ? Is there any option to upgrade to ICS ? IS there any CWM for this phone ? Please send me a detailed reply with the download links and the guide to root, flash a new ICS rom and CWM method too..

Thanks a lot for sharing your views.

Default SVP S580

Finally, I am able to ROOT my device with VROOT and uninstall the WHATSAPP - a pre-installed APP and NOT WORKING. Now, I installed the NEW version of WHATSAPP and is working fine for me.

Will anybody let me know whether this model (SVP S580) has any new version of ROM ?
